Frenectomies: Enhancing Oral Health

There’s more to a healthy smile than having healthy teeth. Frenectomies are a precise and minimally invasive surgical procedure that plays a crucial role in certain oral challenges caused by a tongue tie or lip tie. The skilled and experienced oral surgeons at Torrance Oral Surgery Center provide both tongue and lip tie correction or “release” with a procedure called a frenectomy.

What is a Frenectomy?

A frenectomy involves trimming or loosening the “frenum,” which is a small fold of tissue that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth or the lip to the gums behind it. An overly tight or short frenum can lead to issues like speech impediments, breastfeeding difficulties, and orthodontic problems.

Frenectomy Procedure: Safe, Swift, and Stress-free

At Torrance Oral Surgery Center, we prioritize patient comfort and safety. Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with advanced technology to perform frenectomies with precision and efficiency. The procedure is typically brief, with minimal discomfort. Our compassionate team ensures a relaxing atmosphere, providing patients with the reassurance they need for a stress-free experience.

Post-Procedure Care and Recovery

Following the frenectomy, our oral surgeons provide comprehensive post-procedure instructions. Eating soft foods and taking an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory such as Motrin, or even eating cool foods like a popsicle, can help with discomfort.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

  • Mindy W.

    This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

  • Raj G.

    Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

  • Chahab S.

    Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

  • Paul M.

    A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
